Project Bucephalus are dedicated in spreading STEM learning to the schools of the Illawarra and NSW. The team run the occasional group of free classes at local schools, but cannot afford to run “serious” programs for long periods. The team have been working with FIRST Australia to seek funding to run long-term classes – especially in local disadvantaged schools. Using our own equipment and course material, the team can visit a school and run a robotics program for an entire class as long as we have access to a room, desks, and a power point! We’re even willing to train teachers so the school can continue a STEM program on their own. Currently, the team has two main “packages”, but are always willing to look at alternatives:
$6,050 (Inc GST)The team will run a 10 x 2-hour classes for 22 students, using LEGO® Mindstorms® to teach a standard Introduction material. Once this is complete, the team will deliver a customised curriculum for the remainder of the period. Potential subjects include Advanced Programming, FLL training, Robot Communication & Cooperation, Quick-Build challenges, and more! The ability and interest of the students determines just how far the subject can go.
$2,420 (Inc GST)The team will run 4 x 2-hour classes for 22 students, using LEGO® Mindstorms® to teach a standard Introduction material over three weeks, and concluding with an all-in Robot Sumo tournament.
We are always looking for businesses to help us raise funds to replace equipment or represent Australia at International FIRST events. By purchasing one of the sponsorship packages below, you are not only making a valuable contribution to our ability to get there, but it may be a valid tax deduction. For our major sponsors, the Project Bucephalus team are able to make themselves available to your organisation for demonstrations and to talk about their project. This might be a valuable inclusion in your next staff planning day or retreat!
